Blow away those February blues with a dose of top quality, pumped-up, rootin’ tootin’ and hootin’ jive, swing and old-fashioned rhythm n blues. Ian Aitken, band leader of Juke Joint Jump quotes Big Joe Turner, Wynonie Harris, Louis Jordan, Roy Brown, Bullmoose Jackson and Amos Milburn as the band’s main musical influences, but they also draw on a variety of musical styles to add tons of variety to their sizzling show.
At Jive Party, tracks from their album are regular favourites, including the title track ‘Woman Stop Flappin’ Yer Gums’! Ian Aitken and the band are all seasoned perfomers in the genre and we expect it to be a popular night, which is why booking is recommended.
And as usual, the night at The Rivoli Ballroom gets into swing with our Jive class aimed at beginners – plus music from DJs, right through until 1am.
